Even though this is a [...]

For this event Momac rents a theater at the Angelika, an independent theater that is about a seven minute walk [...]

SMU has some of the most entertaining cultural and artistic experiences on a college campus through our Meadows School of the Arts.

Rising in Ranks from Varsity to Club Sports

Four year varsity football. Four year varsity track and field. First Team All-State athlete. And after all that in high school, NOT a collegiate varsity athlete. Why? Near the end of high school, I was seriously considering the possibility of playing varsity football at my future college. Every time I weighed the pros and cons, [...]

I have been on an SMU meal plan for the past three years and I can genuinely say there are some undeniable perks involved with eating on campus.

I can remember the first time I heard the job title “Maker.” It was from a friend who referenced a man he knew who would make custom objects for a living. “What!?” I asked, “you can make a living off of just making random things for people?” To say I’m a handy person is an exaggeration [...]

Eating, sleeping, and procrastinating. These are a few of the biggest challenges once you come to college. All of the sudden, you have more time on your hands than you’ve ever had before.

Before school starts every semester, a program called “Mustang Corral” takes place. This program consists of programming on campus, an excursion in Dallas (touring Dallas Cowboy’s Stadium, taking a Dallas Trolley Tour, doing community service at Bonton Farms, and more), and an overnight program at an off-campus campsite. Every year, I’ve grown to appreciate Mustang [...]

Corral Guides preparing for Corral Kickoff Festivities College is a magical time.
